Some interesting statistics through the 1st two games of the season:
Keith Ellison is 2nd in the league in tackles with an impressive 27 total, 1 behind the leader
Trent Edwards is the 5th rated passer in the league with a 104 passer rating
Fred Jackson is 5th in the league in rushing at 220 yards,
Buffalo is giving up a solid 65 ypg rushing, but a ridiculous 332 ypg through the air.
Welllll, the sample size is obviously too small for any extrapolation...
After watching Keith Ellison, he's playing well, but he's still Keith Ellison. I thought Nic Harris looked good when he was in. And Perry, stop blitzing Ellison, because he sucks at it.
Trent has started the season well again, will he finish this time? I think so, he's a smart guy and the more control over the offense he has, the better. And a BIG BIG BIG up to AVP, proving that being an offensive coordinator is not rocket science. Unpredictable, balanced, execution, excellent. And is it safe to say that TE has the fastest release in the NFL? I think Tono Romo may be his closest competition.
The Bills give up a ton of passing yards because they still play too much zone. They have 4 corners and 3 safeties that can cover their asses off, there's no need to let the offense know where you are at all times... on the flip side I was pleased with the blitzes, although the Bucs did a good job of picking them up.
Finally, what impact will Marshawn Lynch have on the offense when comes back? Could he possibly have a negative impact? Not likely. He's gonna be fresh, he's gonna be hungry. I just hope the Bills have learned that they need play both backs equally. If they split time, 50/50, it's like having either one of them at 100% for the whole game.
